I am starting a new series called Throwback Thursday. If you have pictures of politicians or activists when they were younger send them to me.

This Thursday I wanted to share the most popular Youtube video about Simi Valley politics with over 10,000 views!

A far right candidate is the best Republicans can do?

Interesting blog post from Ventura County Star reporter Timm Herdt. Seems like the Ventura County Republican Party has decided to move further to the right.

Facebook interview w/ California College Democrats candidate Loren Hansen

I am doing an open interview on Facebook with California College Democrats VP of Finance candidate Loren Hansen.

If you want to post questions or join the conversation go to Facebook.com/briandennerthere . The interview will start 5:30PM on sunday and will continue to Monday morning. He said he will try to answer as many questions as he can.

Here is his bio:

Loren Hansen was born in Oxnard, California. Beginning his political career by interning and eventually becoming an office coordinator for the Julia Brownley campaign in 2012, Loren's involvement in Democratic activism widened when he briefly interned for the county democratic party. After serving in this capacity for about a little over half a year, Loren was appointed to the southern California regional task force of the California College Democrats in which he oversaw communications with Los Angeles county college clubs. Currently, he is a member of the CCD finance committee

Loren is currently running for VP a finance, a position in which he would oversee fundraising activities and create a budget that would represent every college Democrat chapter in California.

State Assembly candidate Jacqui Irwin has quickly united her party. Other possible candidates have been declining to run. Party activists have been giving her support. I am surprised that she was able to do it because she has endorsed so many Republicans over Democrats.

Now she has been moved on to attracting support from elected officials and Republicans. Look at this fundraiser I saw posted on Facebook.

Have you been impressed with the campaign she has put together? She has the support of Democratic Party leader David Atkins and Sheriff Geoff Dean.

Have you seen the Impeach Obama signs on the freeway? The people behind them are birthers.

They fit many conspiracies into a few minutes. Honk if you want to marginalize conservatism by supporting reactionaries. This type of stuff poisons our political debates.

Is Jacqui Irwin really a Democrat?

State Assembly candidate Jacqui Irwin has been criticized for supporting many Republican candidates and for not answering who she supported for president. This is what one of her critics posted:

I posted a few questions to her on Twitter and she quickly answered. Read what she wrote.




What do you think? Do you support her? What other questions do you want her to answer?

New Year's Resolutions w/ Nathan Sweet

Moorpark School Board Member Nathan Sweet sent in his New Year's Resolutions. I believe he has a promising future in local politics. Here is what he wrote:


Brian,
It is that time again for us to make our New Year's resolution. I have been reading many resolutions in the press or posted on social media. Since over 90% of people fail to keep their New Year's resolution, I have decided to renew, what you could call, my continuous resolution.
I was inspired years ago by these words from Benjamin Franklin.

"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man."
So, this year, as in years past, I will try each day to improve myself, either mentally or physically. To read more, and to learn something new each day in order to expand my knowledge and understanding of the world we live in and beyond. But, most importantly, I will continue to strive to be a better husband, father, friend, and citizen of my community. I will continue to try to have a positive impact on the world we live in and leave it a better place for our children. Although this resolution is not a new one, the New Year is the perfect time to reflect on the actions I have taken over the past year to accomplish this goal and renew my pledge of continuing it in 2014.

Thanks Nathan. I appreciate your service as a firefighter and school board member. Citizen is a powerful word. Thank you for reminding us.

I am continuing post New Year's resolutions from local people involved in politics. Here is Randy Nemecek's:


Brian,

My 2014 New Year's resolution is to become proficient in Spanish.
After years of reading "self-help" books on how to learn a foreign
language, I finally decided to get serious and signed up for a SVUSD
adult education class starting January 6th. Cheers!

Randy ran for a seat on the Simi Valley City Council. I believe he will again. Thanks for sharing your resolution.
